New opera on Pioneer Valley's infamous Daley & Halligan case

A unique glimpse of a defining moment in Massachusetts history will be offered in two free workshop performances of the second act of The Garden of Martyrs, a new opera on the 19th century case of Irish immigrants executed in Northampton for a murder they likely did not commit.  The first performance will take place on Sunday, June 12 at 5:00 p.m. in Buckley Recital Hall at Amherst College. The program will be repeated Friday, June 17 at 7:00 p.m. in Robyn Newhouse Hall at the Community Music School of Springfield.
